Media attention doesn't matter much to me. The thought that it matters to prospective Free Agents is also a bit far-fetched as far as I'm concerned. I think it matters what club houses and agents think and are talking about a lot more than what leads ESPN or mlb.com. 

 

As far as this year's additions, I think they are doing well as a group. Schoop hasn't been consequential and Gonzalez hasn't hit much, but I expect all will be OK offensively. This season will hinge on run prevention IMHO. Berrios looks ready to take a step forward, but no one else in the rotation has really stepped up. I'm disappointed with May and Meija in the bullpen, perhaps I was expecting too much.

Says the person who runs the threads on national media attention to the Twins :)

I guess you can care what the national media says when they say it while also not caring if they say anything at all but on the face of it Mike, you gotta admit, that was a pretty good burn.

more tongue in cheek... I enjoy Mike's thread... read it religiously, and have similar views about national attention... only time I get annoyed is that the Twins are never on nationally... but then again, they've deserved that of late.

I have recollections from the Ray Moore and Bill Plies era. You kids go look that up.

That was right around the time that dinosaurs started wandering around correct?
